Quatech Parallel PCMCIA Card with security dongles

Here is a list of security dongles that have been tested with the Quatech Parallel PCMCIA cards. It is rare for these suggestions to not work, so try them, and if they dont work, contact either the manufacturer of the dongle, Quatech, or our support team.

Rainbow Security Dongle

Follow the directions below to configure the Sentinel System Driver to work with a SPP-100 parallel PCMCIA card under Windows 2000 and XP. The Sentinel System Driver 5.41 can be configured to work with the SPP-100. I usually suggest for the customer to download the current drivers for the dongle especially customers using XP. These can be located at SafeNet-inc.com.

    Hardware Configuration

1. From the Control Panel, double-click the System icon to open the System Properties page.
2. Click the Hardware tab and then the Device Manager button to open the Device Manager.
3. Click the + sign next to Ports (COM & LPT) to expand the tree.
4. Double-click on SPP-100 to open the property page.
5. Click on the Resources tab to see the resources used by the adapter. The value listed next to the I/O range will be the bus address the Sentinel software will be looking for, so be certain to write this value down.
6. Sentinel Software Configuration

    Install the Sentinel System Driver

1. Start the driver configuration utility, SetupSysDriver.exe. It is usually located at C:\Program Files\Rainbow Technologies\Sentinel System Driver.
2. Click the “Configure Driver” button.
3. Then click the “Add” button.
4. Enter the I/O address of the SPP-100 parallel port card into the “Bus Address” field. Please leave all other options at the default value.
5. Click the “OK” button.
6. The next screen shows that a User Created port has been added.
7. Click the Add button to close the dialog and then open the File menu and choose Exit to close the Sentinel System Driver Configuration Utility.
8. The Sentinel System Driver should now be configured to use the Quatech Parallel PCMCIA card.

Aladdin or Hasp dongles

This information was provided by the Aladdin/Hasp support team. This seems to work sometimes but there is contact information from the Aladdin/Hasp support. for additional help:

The Hasp/Aladdin dongle has a configuration utility that needs to be told what base address the parallel port is installed at.

1. Set the port to LPT1 with a manual I/O address range of 478 - 47F (automatic setting chooses FFF8 - FFFF).
2. Unzip and extract the hinstall.exe and the haspds_windows.dll files to the same folder.

Remove the previous version of the HASP Device Driver by doing the following:

4. Click on Start.
5. Scroll up to Run.
6. Click on Browse and look for the hinstall.exe file.
7. At the end of the path, type in -r -kp -alldrv It should look something like this depending on where you put the hinstall.exe file.

C:/hinstall.exe -r -kp -alldrv

8. Install the latest version of the HASP Device Driver by doing the following:
9. Click on Start.
10. Scroll up to Run.
11. Click on Browse and look for the hinstall.exe file.
12. At the end of the path, type in -i
13. It should look something like this depending on where you put the hinstall.exe file.

C:/hinstall.exe -i

You can contact the support team at Alladin/Hasp by calling 800-223-4277 or writing to support.us@ealaddin.com.

Metrowerks Code Warrior/OCDemon Wiggler

Metrowerks uses a Command Converter Server which is part of the CodeWarrior software. The CCS usually appears in the icon window next to the time once the OCDemon Wiggler is tried. Double click on the icon for the CCS. This will open a window that looks and acts like a command prompt. The following commands need to be entered.

delete all

config cc lpt:0xFFF0 (where 0xFFF0 is the address of the parallel port)

save cc

config save

These commands should point the CCS to the correct parallel port, save the configuration for later use, and allow use

DK2 Dongle

The latest DK2 driver installation (v6.08.0.154) can be found here, it includes support for Windows XP :
http://www.deskey.co.uk/deskey_downloads.php. I would recommend using LPT address of $378,$278 or $3bc.

Depending on how the PCMCIA device implements its driver the DESkey drivers may not be able to find the LPT port, you can hard code the address the DK2 to be searched by adding it as a DWORD registry value named ‘LPTPort’ in ‘HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\dk2drv\Parameters’.

Keylok and Husqvarna Viking Security Dongles

Keylok and the Husqvarna Viking security dongles are not compatible with the Quatech Parallel PCMCIA. Both manufacturer’s say that their dongles will not work with a USB or PCMICA parallel port.
